Somerset House opens its (metaphorical) doors for a new season of outdoor cinema screenings this August.
Imagine a warm summer evening spent sitting back on blankets, outside in the Somerset House courtyard, sipping Prosecco and munching on sausage rolls and popcorn while you watch Inception or Call Me By Your Name. Sounds good to us.

We all love an outdoor cinema here at Secret London and Film 4’s Summer Screen is one of the biggest, right in the heart of the city. Somerset House provides a gorgeous backdrop – and that, paired with Film 4’s excellent film selection, makes Summer Screen the full package.
The two premieres on the bill this year are The Wife, a ‘compelling and emotional drama’ and ‘celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation’ starring Glenn Close…
And American Animals, ‘the unbelievable true story of four students who mistake their lives for a movie and attempt to pull off one of the most audacious art-thefts in recent US history.’
But you’ll need to book tickets quickly enough!
Tickets go on sale from £19.75 this Friday, May 18. You can buy your tickets through the Somerset House website, here.
